Why Study Aromatherapy in Egypt?


Simply put, Aromatherapy is to Egypt what Yoga is to India. Egyptians are considered the first known Aromatherapists and used oils throusands of years ago. Experiencing Essential Oils in their birth country is a unique opportunity. 


Ancient Egyptians used oils for the mummification process, for spiritual, cosmetic, and medicinal  purposes. Jars which used to contains oils of spikenard and frankincense were found in Tutamkamon Tomb. The first 'oil laboratory' can be found in Upper Egypt, among many paintings of how oils were used for various purposes.


Today, Egypt is a major player in essential oils production and exportation. Delicate Jasmine, Neroli, Rose or even Geranium sold overseas are often produced here in Egypt.
